I don't have any practical help to offer, but after looking that film up on IMDB, I sure hope you can get it through. It looks hilarious.

Thanks. Sometimes I wonder if Archive.org doesn't go out of its way to prevent people from uploading. Out of all the features I mentioned in my first post, the ability to "resume" a file upload if interrupted would be the logical one to have it place ... yet it doesn't seem to be possible. There are probably a lot of people who'd like to contribute feature films to the archive ... but there aren't a lot of people willing to "dedicate" their personal computer to a task that would take 28 hours 45 minutes at the current throttled upload speed. And of those that would be willing to do so (like I was), it's disheartening to cross the 24 hour mark only to have the server disconnect ... especially when the ability to "resume" doesn't exist.

Hehehe, perhaps there's some rarified "cabal" of people out there who get premium upload access to archive servers. All I know is that I'm not in the cabal.
